Lead singer Jonathan Davis wrote this about a neighbor who used to abuse him. He had this to say about the song: "People think 'Daddy' was written because my dad f--ked me up the ass, but that's not what the song is about. It wasn't about my dad or mom. When I was a kid I was being abused by someone else and I went to my parents and told them about it. They thought I was lying and joking around, so they never did any s--t about it. They don't believe it was happening to their son. I don't like to talk about it."
This was performed live only once. It was too emotional for Jon to perform live again. (thanks, Ana - Wilkes Barre, PA, for above 2)
